    String Sextet No 2, op 50 (Pfefferkorn) [2220]

    Romantic. Eduard Franck finished the fair copy of his second string sextet score in December 1884. The piece can thus be described as a typical late work, also evident from its wistful retrospective mood. The sextet's D-major first movement has a concisemain theme moving to an expressive secondary theme whereas its final movement is a polyphonic masterpiece: This full, yet transparent movement integrates all the characteristics of the preceding movements in a rhythmically elastic, richly melodic broadercontext that in the end attains serenity and reconciliation. Set of parts. For a matching study score, please see item 130348. -the publisher
